We shared the two tier seafood to start and shared another fish dish for the main. Both dishes were lovely. Make sure to book ahead otherwise the wait can be over an hour.

Very attentive, comfortable service. Extremely fresh oysters. Good diversity of menu items. Well prepared. Blue cheese olives in the martini were on point. Cheese course was two thumbs up.

Went here for dinner with 3 friends. I've cannot count the times I had walked by without really thinking about eating here..... then one day the penny dropped and we tried it. Just lovely.

From the time we walked in the door, the entire experience- service, food, presentation, ambiance was excellent. A dining experience that would be expected at a first tier restaurant in a major city world wide, in a small resort town in inner British Columbia. If you're in town, you have to eat here at least once!

We arrived without a reservation and were lucky enough to get a table for our family of 5. The children enjoyed some delicious mocktails and we were guided towards fabulous wine choices to complement our meals. Every dish we had was amazing, from my son's steak ( kids menu) to the duck, pork and pasta with mushrooms. Highly recommend this... More

This restaurant does everything well - bar, service and food! Lovely meal - very GF aware and beautiful surrounds. Absolutely recommend it. But it is not cheap.

Had dinner here with friends and also went to the Oyster Bay for drinks as well. The service and food are some of Whistler's finest. Beautiful fresh seafood, great fondue and a top class wine and champagne menu. This is a must for a great night out with friends.

don't get me wrong I really like this place. but I don't think its living up to its hype anymore, its quite pricey and despite arriving on time we waited in the drafty no mans land between the bar and oyster area for 20 mns for our table. service was good, fish was really good though.

Thank Robert W
